We are truly saddened by the passing of a friend and good man. I have many good memories of Ledous, Donald Ray and Alvin. My father and Sam were friends and contemporaries and Ledous and I we were born the same year and remained friends all through the years. I shall miss him and will always cherish the good times we had as boys when they lived with my great-uncle, Will Hooten. Our sympathy to all his family.
